Introducing Mr. Mom - A Tomboy’s Adventure as a Stay-at-Home Mom

I realized that I was a little different than other stay-home moms was when I took my daughter, Maggie, to music class for the first time.


She was only four months old, but I wanted to get her out of the house and interacting with other people on a regular basis so that we wouldn’t go stir crazy sitting at home. I also wanted to do things with Maggie that would be fun and beneficial for her growth. So I threw on some grey Nike sweatpants with a white graphic t-shirt over a white long-sleeved waffle shirt, slipped on my white Nike sneakers and left the house in a white baseball cap.
